CONTROLS & ALERTS
Once I register my cards how do I begin managing and monitoring my payment activity?
You can begin using the service immediately. By turning the card off the little green button in the top right corner of the card image will turn to red. This means that all transactions (expect for reoccurring) will be declined. When ready to make a purchase simply turn the card bank on. It is that easy. Now you have the ultimate control to combat fraud.
After you become comfortable with the on/off function you can start selectively setting controls and alters by channel (in-store, online, mobile, ATM, etc.). You can also set transaction spend limits, select geographic locations where the card can be used, set specific merchant categories, view recent transaction history, receive real-time alerts and much more.
What is a real-time alert?
It is an immediate notification sent to the app. You can select to be alerted on all your payment transactions including recurring payments or you can select just preferred transactions. Preferred alerts are available by spend limits, location, transaction type and merchant category.
By turning my card off am I closing my account?
No. Using the card controls does not change the status of your account.
How long does it take for a control or alert setting to take effect?
It happens immediately after you set and save the option.
If I have my card turned off will my recurring transactions go through?
Yes. Merchant recurring transactions will be approved. Additionally, you can select to receive alerts on recurring transactions as well.
Can I use My Location, My Region and International at the same time?
Where My Locations and My Region work independently or together neither can be used in conjunction with International.
I turned my card on and set My Location. I was at the merchant, and my transaction was still declined. Why?
In the app go to Transactions, find the one that was denied and open it, tap the image so it rotates, and the control(s) that were evoked during the authorization will be listed near the bottom. The transaction could also be declined because of external factors like non-sufficient funds or fraud monitoring.
What are Alert Preferences?
Alert preferences let you know every time a card transaction is attempted. You can be alerted for all or preferred transactions. Preferred alerts are also available by location, transaction type, merchant type, and threshold amount.
My alerts are supposed to notify me of every transaction, but I am not receiving them.
Only the primary device will receive alerts. Use the settings menu in the app to set your device as primary.
